This is one of the questions submitted for the INVERTED COLLAPSE – 3-WEBINAR SERIES!
And it is simultaneously a new Ask Lada episode!
Frankly, I never intended to talk about this, as this is NOT one of my CORE subjects. However, I get such questions more often than I’d like. Therefore, even though you wanted it answered privately, after a consideration, I have decided to set the record straight once and for all publicly, and I trust this answer will put this issue to REST FOREVER. I do not intend to get back to it in the future!
Me personally — I feel strongly that the gay issue should be a complete non-issue, an entirely private matter. We, as humans, should always respect each other regardless of faith and orientation, for as long as the healthy boundaries, law and a greater good of society are observed by all sides. This is how I would treat it, and this is how any wise and healthy society should.
However, years ago, the cabal discovered that the gay people could be used very productively in the globalist plan for a full spectrum dominance of our planet.
From this perspective, I feel equally sorry for the REAL gays. Unfortunately, there are too many of those who are simply fakes and exhibitionists, or those who decided to jump on the bandwagon of the latest fashion. And of course, there is a lot of money nowadays in being gay.
The REAL gays, some of whom may be nursing intensely private real life traumas, have become hostages of the situation; these poor people are used as convenient dupes and globalist props; they have been dragged into this and put on display for all to see, whether they want it or not.
The gay issue is an artificial brainwashing construct for the sheeple, designed to keep tension in Western society, especially in USA and British Isles. It is also a handy tool for the destabilization of any traditional, conservative society around the globe. This is an incredibly brilliant and subversive ploy to divide and conquer by increasing tension in any society.
As we discussed in EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 2: INVERTED COLLAPSE, this is part of a war-like, confrontational, immature, ill-adjusted and greedy lower 3rd DIMENSION, in which the lop-sidedly yang West has been brewing for millennia, and which they try to impose on the rest of the world.
As such, this issue should be ignored by wise people, and that’s what I normally do. I simply don’t understand why I get all these questions — what is it that’s making people ask them?
You have to understand that the gay issue is merely used as a proxy to subdue and enslave others, both domestically and globally. So when you give it energy and ask me these kinds of questions, you validate what the cabal is doing and lend it some of your energy.
However, out of consideration for the fact that you are one of our valued subscribers to the COMPLETE 3 EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR SERIES (thank you!), I want to answer it for you as an exception — as honestly and fully as possible.
As a wise person, Putin’s view on gay people is neutral, as far as the social life goes. Many Russians feel more or less the same, as long as there are no public displays — ‘don’t ask don’t tell.’
However, the Russian Orthodox believers, patriots/nationalists and the Russian government rightly feel that the gay agenda is being used as an aggressive proxy and one of the biggest info war tools by the West, a tool to vilify and provoke Russia, and to destroy Russian unity and faith. Due to the pro-western grant-eaters, who constantly yell and scream about it, the problem gets resurrected all the time artificially.
It’s still vivid in many Russians’ memory how their society was almost destroyed and terribly corrupted by the West in the ’90s. They won’t let that happen again. From this perspective Russia has to act tough and defend herself by adopting certain child protection/anti-gay-propaganda laws.
Putin tries to balance various views to keep it level and stay away from conflict in the society. He has achieved it and the ‘howling’ in the West subsided, having failed in much of its goals, but not before the gay discrimination vilification label was firmly attached to Russia in the psyche of the Western sheeple.
THAT SAID, on a personal level, Putin is a conservative, and a devout Russian Orthodox Church believer. As such, the church dictates a certain view of the subject, so he won’t condone it. But as I said, as a wise leader and person, Putin’s view of gay people is neutral, as is that of many Russians — as long as their children aren’t bothered by aggressive western attacks, masterminded in order to destabilize Russian society.
Therefore, what we see here is a shameful exploitation by the West of an extremely delicate issue, and, typically of the yang/aggressive West, they don’t care how many people they offend and how many lives they break as a result.
But people aren’t blind, and neither are they stupid. An interesting paradox occurred once the West began in 2013 its vicious howling regarding the ‘gay issue’ in Russia, and Russia, as a result had to defend herself. The conservative people in Russia and the West, as well as many conservative societies around the world, became even more convinced that the West cannot be trusted, and only Russia and Putin can. Instead of a vilification they hoped for, all the West achieved was yet another spike in the Russian and international popularity of Putin.
Recall what I’ve been predicting since 2014, when I first began FuturisTrendcast! Whatever the West does going forward against Russia, will always backfire and expose them as the ‘naked king.’ It is yet another proof that the Western way of rampant globalism and predatory colonialism has painted itself into a corner, discrediting its outdated model irreversibly. It’s on its way out — it will continue crumbling and withering, and nothing can stop that.
If you value your well-being and your future, you should be now seriously considering relocation out of harms way and to greener pastures; you should be working on securing your assets; you should heed my advise and prepare by learning my timeline and predictions for the future crucial events! You can only find the real collapse timelines, predictions and unique multidimensional wisdom, which will help you navigate the turbulent waters of today and tomorrow, in LADA RAY’S EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS.
To make you aware of what’s to come and help you be prepared for the Great Earth Shift on time is the sole mission of my new 3 EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR SERIES!

P.S. MORE THOUGHTS ADDED 6/28/17!
I just got the chance to read the comments and I am very glad that some see through the manipulation. It is the disgustingness and the darkness of this manipulation / exploitation that makes it one of the least favorite and least productive topics for me to talk about. It is even worse, in my view, that so many gladly fall for it on both sides.
The only thing that will work long-term is being awake, educating oneself, and being respectful and considerate of each other in all circumstances. Once the 5th Dimension consciousness level is achieved by enough humans, such issues automatically evaporate. But every time we have the hope of our consciousness rising sufficiently, I immediately see relevant dark forces taking over and exploiting the subject (any subject), thus keeping it in the confrontational lower 3D.
Same had happened with many other social issues in the US/West, including feminism and women’s rights — so much crazy manipulation and mind games, so much silly confrontational lower 3D… and due to all that, yet another least favorite topic of mine to talk about.
But I also bit the bullet once and did a piece to clear up the confusion:

Many see the principle ‘every country deserves its government’ as something menacing or negative. But it’s neither negative nor positive: it’s neutral. It works both ways – to one’s advantage or disadvantage – and it doesn’t discriminate. It is akin to karma, or rather a self-fulfilling prophecy. Basically, this principle denotes the collective consciousness and the general cumulative energy of the population at work. It simply reflects that we all collectively are co-creators of our present and future.
I know that it’s hard for some to accept that in many ways a population of any country, tribe, territory or town has collectively generated and propelled to power a specific kind of leader, president and/or elite.
Like it or not, ultimately this is always the choice of any given populace. Sometimes the choice is obvious, when majority democratically votes for a specific candidate.
But what about a monarchy, when the title is passed on from generation to generation? In this case the inhabitants of such country agree generation after generation that such and such ruler has the god-given right to rule them. When they stop agreeing on that, monarchy ceases to exist.
Since we are talking about France today, here’s a great example: in the 18th century the French Revolution put a stop to the monarchic rule and established a republic. Throughout much of the 19th century France continued rocking, with the attempts to resurrect monarchy, since the collective energy of the French citizens could not agree on a single most beneficial future timeline. Admittedly, all this happened with a great deal of external interference by the British Empire, Austria-Hungary Empire and Jewish bankers. However, in the end of the day it were the French people who decided they wanted to live in a republic.
Or let’s take Assad and Syria. No matter how much pressure is put externally on Syria, no matter how much he and his constituents are maligned and threatened, the majority of the population still supports Assad as their leader.
On the other hand, if we take the EU, the system has been designed to produce fake leaders, who are robotic bureaucrats. This happens when the majority of the population is zombified and/or lives in la-la land, when the real world’s problems escape them. Incidentally, this is usually a road to slow destruction. In that case, the populace will produce governments to match.
Now, back to French presidential election. It is clear to me that Marine Le Pen has appeared on the French scene not by accident. Her appearance and fast rise are predestined. In fact, the sane people of France and the EU crave politicians of Le Pen’s strength in order to change the landscape of Europe. The problem is that the old establishment is so far too strong and the percentage of zombified populace is still too large in order for a meaningful change to occur.
However, recall what I predicted in ESR12 re. BREXIT and the Future of the EU: it is a slow and relentless ‘rickety chair effect.’ Slowly, the chair is being more and more destabilized – until it actually falls apart.
The fact that it’s so hard for either candidate, Le Pen, Macron or anyone else, to get a clear majority means that the French population is torn between conflicting choices. It may be clear to us and to those nearly 8 million French citizens who voted for Le Pen, but the rest is either too misinformed, brainwashed or confused. As a result, there is no collective consciousness consensus, or said another way, there is no clear sense of direction France, as well as the whole EU, needs to take.
France is torn between the past and the future. Part of it is a stigma attached to Marine Le Pen’s father and her party (incidentally, that’s why she announced her resignation – I’ll tell you more in upcoming ESR18!). But for the most part it’s all about hanging on to the past and being fearful of change. Some don’t want to give up the cushy lifestyle they came to enjoy as part of the EU; some are afraid to lose all the perks and freedoms the EU allows, such as one currency and open borders.
However, others consider these ‘perks’ to be a burden, and possibly even existential threat, due to the fact that various terrorists and subversive elements may now be able to seep through such open borders, or because one currency and one government restricts national choices, personal freedoms and trade options of any given country. There are additional considerations, such taxes, immigration, social assistance, preserving national and cultural identity, NATO interventionism vs. neutral non-alignment with military blocks, etc.
France’s curse is that it’s Europe’s permanent No. 2. It is one of Europe’s largest economies, with its distinct and rich culture and heritage, with a lot of national pride and talent. Yet in every alliance it has ever entered it always was resigned to playing a second fiddle. With Antanta during WWI it was the second fiddle to the UK; in WWII it was something like a tag along 4th fiddle to three main Allies (USSR, US and UK). In the EU, it’s the second fiddle to Germany.
We can say that the French basically thrived the most when they made an effort to be independent. In recent history it was under Charles De Gaulle and a few of his successors.
Incidentally, it has to be absolutely understood that the phenomenon of De Gaulle and his proud nonaligned, non-NATO, independent of the US/UK/global banksters stance was only possible due to the existence of THE SOVIET UNION, a very strong superpower, which served as the counterweight to the West. The moment Soviet Union was destroyed, France by itself began caving in to pressure from the Anglo-American consortium. Considering how many times this caving in to foreign pressure and partial or complete loss of sovereignty occurred in history, this is something the French resent dearly.
Therefore, if the French at large were smart, they’d get it that only strong Russia – The Great Balancer serves as guarantor of their continued sovereignty. I am not even talking about being grateful for all the support Russia/USSR gave France in the past (alas, gratitude isn’t fashionable in today’s world of Western egoic neo-liberalism).
Perhaps because of this, three out of four major candidates proclaimed their goal of improving relations with Russia. Yet – oh, irony! – Emmanuel Macron, the pro-EU, globalist candidate who stands for confrontation with Russia, won the first round. And it is behind this candidate that the majority of other candidates threw their support in the end.
Even more ironically, the French election front-runner is a younger, slicker, more slippery and more charismatic version of Hollande – the man the French voted out of office during his first term, whose approval now stands at 4%!
Compare him to Marine Le Pen, a rare French politician who truly gets it. This is why she has been so pro-Russian in her statements and campaign promises. In fact, recall what I predicted a while back (in 2014 or 2015, I think): forget the old division into leftists and rightists. That should be left in the 20th century. Presently, the defining factors for who to vote for are: how a candidate or party positions itself in regards to the issues of sovereignty, globalism and relations with Russia. THIS is your ultimate litmus test.
Per Lada Ray’s EARTH SHIFT THEORY, human society has become incredibly imbalanced and lopsided towards unabated individualism and egoic consumerism, which in the end will unavoidably lead to the ultimate loss of all freedoms through the Western-style globalist project, unless Russia – The Great Balancer rebalances the planet before it’s too late.
Who will France elect as new president? France’s choice will tell us whether the population deserves a better government and a better future.
OR, whether France will continue reliving the classic definition of madness: making the same mistake over and over again and expecting a different result. We will discuss all this in upcoming EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18.

Due to a broad-range international consequences of Trump’s attacks against Shairat Airforce Base in Syria, for the rest of this week I am publishing a series of my new articles related to the Gordian Knot of entangled relations between the following players:
US / Trump / Tillerson
Syria / Assad
China / Xi
Russia / Putin / Lavrov
I want to again emphasize that the world is going through a giant tectonic shift on all levels of consciousness and everyday existence of mankind. To describe this giant metamorphosis I coined the term THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
The first, fictional account of this multi-dimensional process and its possible consequences appeared in my 2012 novel THE EARTH SHIFTER. Although a fictional story, it gives you a glimpse into what is taking place on our planet, beyond the obvious.
As part of my EARTH SHIFT theory, I have defined the role of various global powers, most importantly, RUSSIA – THE GREAT BALANCER. The other geopolitical superpowers, geo locations and countries play their own roles in the composite structure of our world, and they have their own role to play in the Earth Shift – big or small. Some elements of my EARTH SHIFT theory and practice have been discussed in past EARTH SHIFT REPORTS and WEBINARS. Much more will be presented to you in future WEBINARS and non-fiction BOOKS on which I am presently working.
I’ll continue publishing free articles on FuturisTrendcast and free videos on LadaRayChannel. This is part one of the new series, following my recent #Trump and US #Syria Attack: Hate to Say I Told You So!
WAS TRUMP’S SYRIA ATTACK AN AFFRONT TO CHINA?
Of course, it was. It was a true humiliation to China and its leader Xi Jinping, who during the US attack against Syrian Shairat base was in Orlando to talk trade and relations improvement with Trump.
It is well-known that China recognizes Assad as legitimate leader of Syria and maintains that Syrian conflict can only be resolved via peaceful negotiations.
That very poorly executed US cruise missile strike may have even been rushed to coincide with the Xi’s visit. This partially may account for the sloppiness of the execution, when so many targets were missed.
Actually, it was an embarrassing for the US military strike, all things considered. Only 23 out 59 Tomahawk missiles landed within the base, most of them causing little damage. The rest of the Tomahawk missiles disappeared into thin air (were lost in transit or landed in the sea, if you believe the official line). Some hit peaceful villages, killing innocent civilians. Most damage was to relatively unimportant objects, such as canteen and old planes. The air strip and most structures are intact and jets are still flying. Syrian airforce base was back in operation shortly after the attack – another testament to the low effectiveness of the strike.
This tell us: 1. Tomahawk missiles aren’t very good. 2. It was a sloppy operation for two reasons: it was hastily put together and it wasn’t very well thought through.
But I will tell you tha tin my opinion it didn’t need to be thought through that well. The true plan for this strike, as well as the related false flag Idlib ‘sarin gas chemical attack’ was to sabotage any possible improvement in Russia-US relations.
I want to stress yet again something that perhaps not all are grasping. No matter how you look at it, the whole op had to be prepared well in advance. The Idlib chemical attack false flag; Trump’s straight jacket; intel on Syrian base, delivering, prepping, calibrating missiles – all this takes time and coordination. The entire complex op took some time to prepare, as pointed out in #Trump and US #Syria Attack.
You’ll ask where does China and Xi’s visit come into this? Very simple: Trump has a fixation over ‘showing China its place,’ ‘military escalation with China,’ and ‘taking jobs away from China.’ Listen to my Webinar follow up YT video: TRUMP’S WAR vs CHINA AND IRAN. RUSSIA NO LONGER US ENEMY? LadaRayWebinar1 Q3.
It seems Trump wanted to use the opportunity of Xi’s visit to show who the boss is and to send China a message. This was why the strike was a bit rushed – someone whated it to take place during Xi’s visit.
Since China’s position on Syria and Assad – coinciding with Russia’s – is well-known, a missile strike during Chinese President’s visit can only signify a disrespect of China. If you are receiving another power’s leader in your home, the least you can do is be a gracious host.
The US showed itself as not so gracious of a host (or guest) in the past. But there is a marked difference between what was happening in the past and what we’ve seen with Syria strike during Xi’s visit. The striking distinction is that in previous manifestations, such underhanded actions by the US were usually well-hidden and ingenious in their deviousness. When Kissinger and such were in charge of those devious designs, at least they were smart. What we see with the present situation is sloppiness, unprofessionalism and some sort of juvenile gloating.
Another interesting detail is a seeming lack of proper analysis and strategic calculation in Trump’s actions. At least one huge mistake made by Trump: two enemies were created in one fell swoop: Russia and China (I’m not even talking about Iran). Trying to play Russia against China, as the original Kissinger plan implied, was awfully devious, but smart. The Syria stunt wasn’t smart.
Of course, I have to immediately qualify this by reiterating what I’ve always maintained: Russia and Putin would never allow a hot WWIII to take place. This is one of the roles of the planetary GREAT BALANCER. Russia will do everything to calm the situation and take it out of the realm if the US cowboy hotheads and into the realm of diplomacy.
That said, Russia will make it absolutely clear that no further breach of Syrian air space, or any other illegal acts by US/West, will be tolerated. (At this very moment US Sec of State Rex Tillerson is meeting with Sergey Lavrov in Moscow – I’ll have a separate post about this meeting and what it means.)
Let’s refer again to LADA RAY WEBINAR: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM? where we have discussed the secret Kissinger plan proposed to Trump when he first took office in January, 2017.
According to this plan, Trump would have tried to entice Russia to distance from China and reduce Russia’s nuclear arsenals in exchange for several major concessions on USA’s part, including: 1. USA’s gradual distancing from Ukraine, with subsequent release of Ukraine from US/EU grip; 2. West’s recognition of Crimea; 3. Repeal of anti-Russian sanctions. 4. There may have been other minor perks, so to speak, such as Russia rejoining G7.
In the WEBINAR we did a full-spectrum analysis of the Kissinger plan. I explained how Russia would NOT fall for any of it. In the past, under Gorbachev and Yeltsin, Russia did fall for ‘US offers.’ It never ended well. I explained why Russia would never agree to any sort of new nuclear arsenal reduction treaty with US, why Russia didn’t really care about Crimea being recognized, and why Russia didn’t mind the sanctions. As a matter of fact, in my opinion, more sanctions would be even better, especially those of financial nature. This would spur Russia to finally deal with the imposed by the West in the ’90s predatory financial system.
In order to prove that he was right in wanting to get on a good foot with Russia, and to silence his critics, Trump needed some substantial international victory or two. In the WEBINAR I explained how Trump made crucial mistakes in international relations from the start. He trumpeted everywhere how he would exchange a nuclear arms reduction treaty for certain deals with Russia. He bragged about it publicly without first checking with Putin if this was something Russia would even consider. That was an unforgivable faux pas. I said Trump was inexperienced and it showed: “wet behind the ears’ comes to mind. Although, I have to say that Obama wasn’t any better and neither would Hillary be.
Remember that famous secret phone call between Putin and Trump? In essence Trump’s inappropriate public assumptions made Putin teach him what to do and what not to do in international relations. He made Putin tell him WHAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN.
As those of you who listened to the WEBINAR recall, I explained that Trump was used to making deals and that he thought that he would just ride in on his white horse, start making deals left a right and the whole world would be his.
Unfortunately for Trump, Putin is way out of his league. As you know, in the WEBINAR I concluded that Trump really had absolutely nothing to offer Russia. None of the offers (and we discussed them all in detail), gave anything to Russia that Russia truly needed, or wanted enough to sacrifice her strategic interests.
As a side note: sometimes one has to wonder if Trump is just a big child. As a matter of fact, the severe infantilization syndrome has become a common trait of the US and Western politics. Just look at the likes of the UK’s FM Boris Johnson. It’s worrying that so many weapons of mass destruction, global economic and financial instruments are concentrated in the hands of the ‘bipolar teenagers.’
Back to Trump-Putin phone call: Alas, it’s been all downhill since that conversation between Putin and Trump. It seems Trump has decided that since Russia won’t give him what he wanted, namely a great victory and an opportunity to look good while riding into the Capitol on that proverbial white horse, he’d make Russia pay.
Of course, this coincided with the gradual tightening of that proverbial ‘Trump’s straight jacket.’ The result is Trump’s / US Syria Attack and new escalation.
No, US strike was not done exclusively or specifically as a message for China, as some suggested. However, it was a meaningful coincidence that Xi happened to visit the US at that moment.
The complex op was planned well in advance, in order to prevent Russia-US relations improvement and to sabotage the pre-announced potential meeting between Putin and Trump, which was initially planned for April or May. After what happened in Syria, the Putin-Trump meeting is likely to be postponed.
Meanwhile, the Chinese President Xi’s visit to Florida was a last minute surprise, agreed upon very shortly before it happened.
Yes, US Tomahawk strike was rushed just a little to be timed to additionally humiliate Chinese leader. But that was a cherry on the cake. The real underlying reason was to re-create and worsen the rift between Russia and US (and also between Russia and UK and Russia and EU), never allowing it to heal.
Did Trump succeed in ‘putting China in its place?’ No, not really. Xi and China aren’t stupid and they’ve made their conclusions. All he accomplished is pushing China even closer to Russia. This, if you recall our discussions, is the opposite of the mega-goal of the Kissinger Plan.
Did the main goal of keeping and worsening the rift between Russia and US (incl. EU and UK) succeed? Only partially, and I can confidently predict that Russia/ Putin /Lavrov will make sure it doesn’t stick.
Did the additional goal of maintaining the rift between Russia and EU and imposing new sanctions succeed? Not at all. As a matter of fact, during G7 EU has said NO to more sanctions. If anything, a rift between US and European allies has solidified.

Colonial leftover: only three countries still use inches, pounds, gallons, miles. Even the original colonial power itself, the United Kingdom, parted with outdated ‘Imperial’ units of measure…
Guess, which three countries didn’t? They are: Liberia, Myanmar (Burma), and the United States of America. The rest of the world is metric.
Britain’s 50-year-old Trident nuclear deterrent (or attack?) system located on four subs off the shore of Scotland is subject of the latest scandal. The whistleblower who reported that the system was outdated and dangerous was dishonorably discharged, while the repeat missile test failures were covered up.
UK’s PM Theresa May is facing some uncomfortable questions, which, as you’ll see here, she refuses to answer time after time.
Link to the snippet of that BBC interview: four times in a row May refuses to answer the question whether she knew of the missile testing problem!
But the way I see it, this scandal, believe it or not, isn’t about the failed test, or public safety, or the fact that those four malfunctioning nuclear subs could at any moment turn the coast of Scotland into Chernobyl + Fukushima of Western Europe. They seem to not care so much about that. If that was it, I think they’d find a way to cover this up yet again.
This time, it’s more than a regular test failure, of which the Trident system had many. This time the failed missile WAS FIRED IN THE WRONG DIRECTION – TOWARDS THE USA.
This is what the accusation actually implies: ‘WRONG DIRECTION!’
Now, the question becomes: in their opinion, what is the ‘right direction’ to fire said missile?
We all know the answer to that: for them, the only ‘right direction’ is against Russia.
Let’s just say it is a great thing that their nukes are rotting. Keep it up!

100.0% Reporting Votes
Remain a member of the European Union
Leave the European Union
I think this is an awesome result and I congratulate the British people on this achievement!
The result, as I pointed out in ESR12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU, could be worse based on the collective unconscious I’ve tapped into, which displayed the underlying energetic confusion and a strong potentiality for vote manipulation. I still think (per my ESR12 thoughts) that completely unmanipulated, the BREXIT vote should have achieved 58% or better result TO LEAVE. That said, the people of the UK have an excellent reason to celebrate.
And David Cameron resigned! That alone is a great result. Truly, no one could be worse than him, although how much better can it get if the next PM is from the same party? In truth, just like the US, the UK requires a complete, 100% overhaul of its political system. More on Cameron, Boris Johnson, Nigel Farange, Merkel, Marine le Pen and Trump in ESR12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU.
However, as you see, the vote is very close. I spoke about it in ESR12, explaining what this would mean.
I realize how exhilarated everyone is with the victory, albeit a very close one. Please forgive me for raining on anyone’s parade, however, my ESR12 prediction about the general timeline of the EU and UK remains largely unchanged.
Obama and US + Merkel and Brussels will try to do what they can to delay BREXIT and to keep UK tied to the EU. At least until after Russian Duma elections in September 2016 and until after US elections in November 2016. If they fail at that, it will greatly boost Trump’s chances and it will also add more support to Russia and Putin.
They know this very well, but it’s encouraging to see that the EU people are finally awakening.
That said, the referendum result itself is a HUGE blow to Obama, Hillary Clinton and Merkel. It is a great boost for Trump, and Trump will try to capitalize on it, while Obama/US establishement/EU will try to do everything to sabotage and delay the implementation of BREXIT.
The polarization of the Western society has reached its peak, which is normal for the times of great change. We’ll see who wins the battle in the near term.
The recent successes of the alternative parties in Italy, France and Austria, various EU revolts, the Dutch referendum and the YUKOS Dutch court decision in Russia’s favor all point to the fact that US and subservient to it EU elites are losing the battle. This in itself is excellent news and we’ll talk about it below. I call the gradual change this brings the rickety chair effect. The EU revolts, the effect in question and where all this will eventually lead are discussed in detail in ESR12.
Again, please forgive my caution and extreme conservatism, with a modicum of skepticism, when it comes to assessing the future of the West. Just consider for a moment how close the vote result has been: 48.1% vs. 51.9%. There is a danger that this close result will be used to try to delay BREXIT, or to make a covert deal which would make it look on the surface as if UK has left, yet the country would still likely be tied to the EU in secret.
I still see a lot of confusion and fights inside the UK going forward.
Incidentally, it’s also possible that Scotland will try to secede once more. Similar movements to secede also exist in northern Italy and in Spain (Catalonia/Barcelona).
My relative skepticism is strictly short-term, and believe me, I’ll be happy to be wrong here! All my life I’ve seen too much ugliness, contempt and aggression towards my country Russia, and my people, from the West. Regretfully, this ugliness isn’t abating – it’s actually intensifying as the gloves off fight over the future of the world comes to a head. I’ll be overjoyed if the people of the West manage to positively surprise me by acting better than I’ve seen them act for years.
By contrast, my long-term global predictions are very positive and remain the same as always:
1. The Great Eurasia is forming in front of our very eyes, and it’s only the matter of time for it to gain real traction.
2. The predatory US Empire is waning, which in the long run will be good for all, certainly including Americans.
3. EU has two roads to choose from and depending on how soon and how well Europeans make their choices, it can be done the easy way or the hard and protracted way. If present EU governments refuse to reform, if new politicians are not elected in the EU ASAP (Merkel, Hollande and the Brussels gang all have to go), EU will fall apart within several years.
But is it possible to save the EU at all? No, not in this configuration. But IF after EU falls apart (and NATO is disbanded – give both several years) some countries decide they would like to stay or get back together in some sort of looser and more productive configuration – why not. They should.
The closest analogy is that of the USSR. EU is undergoing the process the USSR and the so-called ‘Eastern Block’ experienced in mid-to-late 1980s through 1990s. Both Warsaw Pact and the USSR fell apart because the way they were held together was counterproductive and even harmful. However, as we are observing, the new, much healthier and forward-looking alliances are now forming around Russia within the Eurasian space (and global space, too).
4. The rickety chair effect I describe in ESR9 and ESR12 is gaining momentum. If you recall, in ESR12 I said that BREXIT, regardless of its result will generate a domino effect in Europe when more and more countries will want to have referendums to exit the EU, since EU isn’t fulfilling their needs and aspirations any more. This will lead to the old EU ‘chair’ becoming more and more rickety and more and more unstable.
Recall that I said since 2014 that Greece may again try to GREXIT in 2017 or 2018. But Greece is in a very difficult economic situation. It’s more likely that the richest and most successful EU countries will try to exit first, namely France, the Netherlands, Italy, Denmark, and even Germany. Emboldened by their success in the UK and the earlier anti-Ukraine vote in the Netherlands, the organizers of the referendum are very likely to go on helping organize similar referendums in other EU countries.
5. REFERENDUMS GALORE coming up! The new GLOBAL TREND has shaped up in front of our eyes, began by the Crimean March 2014 referendum to secede from Ukraine. When politicians and elites refuse to listen to their people, people will take power into their own hands and show their strength through direct democracy.
6. The positive effects of the rising REFERENDUM TREND is that of the direct democracy and people’s empowerment. People will begin recalling that they do hold real power.
Another positive effect will be in favor of the long-suffering people of Russia and what is so far called Ukraine (the future Novorossia, plus possibly also Carpatian Rus and Kiev Rus, depending on how finalized divisions will be made).
The effect is this: after having their own referendums and the change in the rotten political system of the EU, Europeans will finally recognize the Crimean and Donbass referendums and they will finally stop harassing Russia! The voices to recognize Crimean referendum are already sounding from the saner EU politicians, and eventually it will become a norm.
Recall my prediction that Ukraine (under another name, or names) will turn back to Russia by 2018. All this will be happening simultaneously: along with an avalanche or referendums and EU revolts and the turn of Ukraine towards Russia, not only Crimea will be recognized officially as a part of Russia by the West. Along with DNR/LNR 2014 referendums, the forgotten referendums in Pridnestrovie – Transnistria (to join Russia), as well as in Abkhazia and S. Ossetia will also be recognized. This may take a few years though.
Very few in the West know, but the USSR had the famous 1991 referendum, the information about which was buried. In that referendum the majority of the former Soviet republics voted to preserve the USSR. Just imagine what happens when the real results are made public or the 1991 referendum is repeated!
The interesting thing is that even the former Baltic republics that are considered anti-Russian (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) may surprise us, should their people are ever allowed to have their own opinion. So far the regimes there suppress the voice of the people, aided by the US tanks. And this is why Estonia and Latvia deny the right to vote to their Russian-speaking population. What will happen when millions of the so-called ‘non-citizens’ are actually allowed to vote? One thing for sure: US tanks will have to leave in a hurry…
In fact, people everywhere will be emboldened to conduct referendums on issues of importance. Some Balkans/ex-Yugoslavia mini-states, which have been artificially divided, may decide as a result of their referendums to get back together. Specifically these are: Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia.
I also foresee a new tight union (economic, political and more) eventually forming between the Balkans countries, including some of former Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Greece – and Russia/Eurasian Union.
I am very curious to see what happens to Turkey after the Kurds get together and organize their referendum.
These are just some of the examples. In general, we are present during The GREAT EARTH SHIFT. The old systems, be it political, social or spiritual are falling off and the new are emerging. The new countries, new borders and new unions will emerge and strengthen, while the old will either diminish or disappear altogether.
I give NATO a few more years before it is disbanded.
BREAKING NEWS: at the same time that we all were fixated on BREXIT, a historic SCO summit took place in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. SCO, per above prediction on the new alliances and unions, is growing exponentially. I’ll have a separate piece on that. Stay tuned!

The BREXIT referendum is currently underway in the UK! Many in the EU, US, Russia and all over the world are watching with dated breath what the result will be.
In the run up to BREXIT referendum, UK has experienced unprecedented pressure from the US and Obama personally, from EU/Merkel/Germany, and from UK government, to stay in the EU.
However, not all are united even within UK elites. Perhaps one of the surprises is this:
You may be interested to know that the last straw that triggered BREXIT referendum, allowing it to gain enough support to go forward, was not the economic or political crisis in the EU: it was in fact the refugee crisis amid open EU borders, and EU’s inability to deal with it.
So, what will be the result of the BREXIT referendum? What goes on behind the scenes and who’s who in the UK political spectrum? What EU and worldwide implications should we expect after BREXIT? Will there be a domino effect and how it may work out? How US pressures David Cameron and UK/EU ruling elites and what will come out of it? How all this is related to Russia (extremely closely) and China?
All this – and much, much more – explained and bold predictions made

The snapshot of the NATO tweet below just about sums up the escalating Eurovision scandal.
‘Repeat after me: NATO loves Jamala and there was absolutely nothing political about her win’ (via
Most of my readers are probably far from being fans of Eurovision. I know I am not one, and I certainly wasn’t planning on mentioning it on FT. However, the latest scandal just keeps popping up wherever I look, so I thought I’d put in my two cents.
Eurovision is a very big deal in Europe. As some of you may know, it is the world’s largest and by far the grandest pop song contest that has been established years ago by the UK and a few other founding countries to promote ‘cooperation and understanding’ in Europe.
It’s sort of Olympics of pop, if you will, where people from various countries pop up (no pun intended) with national pride or go crazy with disappointment, depending on their singer’s result. It usually gets very emotional and doesn’t always reflect the actual quality of the song. But for those who like good music, sometimes, if you are really lucky, you may even catch a nice performance or two.
However, based on the stunts Eurovision organizers are pulling lately, I think they should rename it to ‘Eurohate.’
The organizers of the competition are public television stations in each founding country. For UK this would be BBC, plus other corresponding TV organizations in several other EU states (I believe these are France, Germany and Spain). The Eurovision competition has been on for so long that the singers from the USSR had participated in it. I think this about sums it up and gives an idea who is in charge and where it’s going.
A huge scandal is developing as a result of Eurovision 2016, which has just ended in Sweden. Firstly, organizers secretly changed the judging system.
Previously, it were the fans and spectators who called in their opinions of every performer. Based on the number of popular votes in each country the resulting country score for every participant was announced: maximum 12, minimum 0. The formula for how that was determined also raised a lot of questions in the past years. Then the judges were added, whose votes were counted as part of the score.
This year, after the final participant list became clear, Eurovision announced new cardinal changes to the system. The overwhelming favorite was a well-known Russian singer Sergey Lazarev. Many believe that the system was tweaked in such a way that he would not be able to win, and consequently, Russia would not be able to host Eurovision next year. But that was only part of it. The idea was to humiliate Russia, make it uncomfortable and painful, therefore, it was necessary that an anti-Russian song would win. Enter song ‘1944’ and ‘Ukrainian’ singer Jamala, who’s in reality a self-professed Crimean Tartar, and who’s originally from Kyrgyzstan.
Eurovision announced that the final result of the 2016 contest would be calculated based on two things: popular vote in each country and a secret judging panel of five in each country. The judging panel was not announced publicly and it met behind closed doors. This arrangement posed a lot of questions as to who were the judges, who named them, and who influenced their opinion. The unknown judges’ marks were pompously presented during the final TV vote as the marks of the country in question, which negated the system of public voting.
News-Front Agency, whose material I sometimes post on FT, has interviewed a member of the German judging panel, who said that they met and voted a day prior to the actual final performances. You decide what this means: that 5 judges times 40+ countries were all clairvoyant? Or, more plausibly, they were simply told how to vote?
Oh yes, before I forget, according to rules, the songs must not be political. After all, Eurovision is all about ‘cooperation and building bridges,’ right? The winner of this year’s Eurovision outright broke this rule with her openly political song.
Another rule: countries cannot vote for their own singers; they must vote for other countries. And so they did.
According to Eurovision’s own tally, the all-European popular vote across the board was given to the Russian performer Sergey Lazarev. However, for some ‘strange and unexplainable’ reason Lazarev across the board received extremely low scores from the national judging panels. For example, in Ukraine popular vote gave him 12 – maximum, while judges gave him 0.
The video above (watch from 3:55 onward) gives a list of strange disparity between the popular and judge vote in various countries when it came to judging the Russian singer’s performance. On the list: Armenia gave Russia: popular vote – 12, judges – 2; Estonia 12 vs 0, Ukraine 12 vs 0; Czechia: 10 vs 0; Georgia: 8 vs 0; Germany and Serbia both: 12 vs 1.
Belarus, Azerbaijan, Greece and Cyprus gave Russia the highest score, 12 points, on both sides.
Meanwhile, the judges routinely gave their highest score to a participant from… Australia. I haven’t listened myself, but I am sure the charming Korean girl from Australia deserved such high score and her performance was lovely… That said, I must have missed the Great Earth Shift in the past few weeks. Did Australian continent suddenly move from its usual place is southern hemisphere and somehow became co-joined with Europe? After all, Eurovision, as so many Europeans like to insist, is a EUROPEAN contest.
I recall the noise when Turkey and Azerbaijan became a part of Eurovision. ‘They don’t belong, don’t let them in.’ Well, Azerbaijan is located in Caucasus – ON European continent. And whether some like it or not, a small piece of Turkey, where Istanbul (Constantinople) is situated, is also located on European soil.
At one point there were even indignant voices that Russia shouldn’t belong in the contest because ‘it’s not a part of Europe.’ Hurray for the top-notch European education with a brilliant knowledge of geography!
Don’t get me wrong. I think the competition should be open to all countries on the globe. The more the merrier. The problem is not the contest itself; I think the idea behind it is marvelous. Building bridges is what normal people would want. It’s who is pulling the strings and what this contest is used for – that’s where the problem lies.
Sadly, Eurovision, much like the Nobel Prize, is used as a high-profile proxy in the war against Russia. Just like the aforementioned prize, Eurovision is also used to punish those the West considers undesirable, and to reward those they want to encourage. Usually this encouragement is used as part of the aggressive global divide and conquer.
But let’s get back to the judging results. So, Russian singer gets the popular vote and Australian singer gets the judges preference. Now, a wild guess who actually won? That’s right, Jamala, a Crimean Tartar singer from Ukraine. Australian singer was second and Russian Sergey Lazarev ended up third.
The song Jamala sang was called ‘1944.’ It talked about tragic experiences of Crimean Tartars during WWII, when the entire tribe was deported to Central Asia. Let me again point out that political songs are not allowed at this competition, yet this rule is routinely broken. I think next time Russian singers should sing about the 27 million Russians/Soviets killed in WWII, or about Mongol-Tartar invasion and the devastation Crimean Tartars inflicted on Russians throughout history; Brits should sing about bombings by German aviation of Coventry and London, while Germans should sing how US/UK bombed to the ground Dresden. Serbs should sing how NATO bombed their country; Czechs – how Germany and Poland invaded them and tore the country apart; Greeks, how Ottoman Turks invaded and killed them, and so on. If some can do it, why can’t others? It’s a democracy and same rules apply to all, don’t they?
I didn’t want to focus here on what really happened in 1944 and why. I may touch more upon the real truth of what happened in Crimea in 1941-1944, as well as Crimean Tartar actions during Mongol-Tartar invasion. This should be discussed in my future Crimean Agenda Earth Shift Report, which will come out later in the year (see Earth Shift Reports link at the bottom).
But because the real history was so severely re-written or silenced due to West’s relentless desire to malign everything Russian, let me say a few words for clarity’s sake. The gruesome truth is that when Crimea fell to Hitler and German Nazis in 1941, Crimean Tartar leadership greeted the invaders with great enthusiasm. Under occupation, many Crimean Tartars served as snitches, concentration camp guards and executors of Russians and Ukrainians. The situation in Crimea was quite similar to western Ukraine and Bandera ukro-nazis. Many, many Russians were tortured and executed by, or with the help of, Crimean Tartars.
When Red Army returned in 1944, local witnesses told stories of the brutal genocide Crimean Tartars inflicted together with Hitler’s troops. When volumes and volumes of evidence were collected, the decision was made to relocate all Crimean Tartars to Central Asia, mainly Uzbekistan, partly for their own safety, because Crimeans might have torn them apart if they remained. Let’s recall, it was still the middle of WWII and parts of Soviet territory were not liberated yet. Russians could hardly spare many resources for such a massive endeavour. They acted in the best possible way with the information and capacities they had at the time. Also, considering the brutal invasion Russia/USSR was still under, 27 million dead, cities and infrastructure destroyed, the overwhelming tragedy and devastation, just look at the humanity with which it was handled!
The relocation destination was not the cold Siberia or Kazakhstan, but the warm and sunny Uzbekistan, where there is plentiful food that grows all year round and the climate similar to Crimean. Plus Uzbeks are Muslims, with similar enough customs to the Crimean Tartars, so it was reasonable to assume they would get along.
Granted, just like in the case of Western Ukrainians, not every Crimean Tartar was a snitch or war criminal/mass murderer, but it was the middle of the most brutal war Russia has ever known. There was no possibility to investigate who was who and who did what. It was known that many were and many more supported it. Was it cruel to relocate people so suddenly? Yes, it absolutely was. Now let’s ask ourselves: how would you react if you found out that these people caused thousands of your people to be executed, if you knew many of them looted the homes and buildings retreating Russians were forced to abandon, thus preying on the common tragedy? How would you react if your family was dead because of them? How does the deportation look compared to that inhumanity and cruelty?
On top of it, there was another reason for deportation: as Red Army continued advancing to chase Hitler out of the country, it was legitimately feared that Crimean Tartars may betray again and strike from behind. With no possibility of keeping enough forces to guard Crimea, when all resources were necessary in the advancing western front, when it was impossible to investigate which of them were implicated in treason and which weren’t, the most humane and expedient way to solve the problem was to relocate the entire tribe far from the danger zone. Note also that this way families weren’t separated (which would occur if males, who potentially presented more risk as combatants, were placed in concentration camps till further investigation) and were able to continue living a normal life after relocation.
I’ll just add that during medieval Mongol-Tartar invasion, the nomadic Tartars invaded Russian steppes from Asia. Some of them took over Crimea and settled there, thus becoming ‘Crimean’ Tartars, as opposed to other Tartars living in Russia, such as Volga Tartars. Crimean Tartar Khanate, ruled by a war lord referred to as ‘khan,’ made a living by periodically invading Russian cities (they went as far as the rich Kiev and Moscow). They would loot, kill, burn down cities and kidnap as many Russians as they could, to sell them as highly prized slaves in the Middle East. There is much more to the story, and books could be filled with sordid details.
It certainly isn’t the kind of history that Crimean Tartars, nudged and supported by their Western handlers, are trying to present. They portray themselves as poor innocent victims, mistreated by big, mean Russia for no reason at all. They are not the first ones to manipulate history and reality to suit their ulterior motives – we’ve seen this before. Of course, such blatant manipulation is only possible because the West encourages it.
But every coin has two sides. Part of the problem is that Russians always tried to sweep the tragedies that OTHERS CAUSED TO THEM under the rug in order to keep a friendly cooperation going. To keep peace in the family, so to speak. This, as much as the West’s encouragement, emboldened falsifications.
Incidentally, Putin recently signed the Crimean Tartar rehabilitation law. Hundreds of thousands of them returned to Crimea, they are given social help, housing and opportunity to start business. Crimean Tartar language, along with Russian and Ukrainian, is an official language of the Crimean autonomy – three official languages in total. Today’s Crimean leadership is doing everything to reconcile the past, include Crimean Tartars in the life of the republic, and keep peace. Now, that’s a mature and responsible behavior!
Meanwhile, the true history related to Tartars is turbulent and very unpleasant, to say the least. As usual, karma normally catches up with all. You live by the sword – you die by the sword. Crimean Tartar violence caught on to them eventually. The WWII deportation story, while tragic for families, is a karmic consequence of earlier collective deeds.
I’ll tell you more: the sooner Crimean Tartars understand the universal karmic law of cause and effect, the sooner they at large make peace with it and take a different route as a tribe, the faster they will resolve their heavy karma. The sooner they understand that those who attempt to revive old animosities are the true enemy of their people, the easier they will regain peace and dignity they crave so much. The sooner they figure out that the so-called Crimean Tartar Mejlis and the convenient dupe Jamala are fakes, being used as expedient political tools to harm Russia and plunge Crimean Tartars again into conflict, the better for everyone.
There are indications that the majority of Crimean Tartars residing in Crimea are starting to get it. It’s an absolutely different story for those ‘Crimean Tartars’ who are outside of Crimea and who are on payroll of Western or Turkish interests.
I know Russians are trying very hard to help Crimean Tartars be accepted in Crimea and overcome their old karma through extending a hand of cooperation and involving them in the life of the republic. For example, deputy head of the Crimean republic is a Crimean Tartar.
But Russia is alone in this positive approach. Driven by hate, the West, Turkey, Ukraine, Mejlis and all sort of extremist Islamist organizations attempt to use Crimean Tartars as an instrument directed at destabilizing Russia.
It is clear that Jamala is a political project and tool in the new all-out anti-Russian war. The Mejlis ‘leader’ Mustafa Jamilev, who’s a Kiev Rada deputy and well-known agent of CIA and Turkey, was at Eurovision to cheer her on. Crimean Tartar Mejlis is the organization that exists in Ukraine and Turkey. It has been banned in Russia as terrorist organization after in December 2015 it, together with Ukraine nazis from the right sector, blew up electric transformers, leaving without electricity 2.5 million Crimeans, including hundreds of thousands Crimean Tartars.
To conclude, the Crimean Tartar card and their turbulent history are used to:
1. Distract, humiliate and malign Russia
2. Attempt to create more animosity between Ukraine and Russia, keeping the artificial separation alive
3. Attempt to create a fight between Russians and Tartars, presently co-existing peacefully in Crimea
4. Stoke animosity between Muslims and Christians within Russia
5. Prop up an artificial wall of distrust and animosity between Western Europe and Russia, not allowing them to come together in cooperation as one single Eurasian space.
Let’s add that today, May 18, is the anniversary of the 1944 Crimean Tartar deportation, and the picture is complete. Jamala’s Eurovision win timed to this anniversary, and so ardently supported by NATO, says it all.
But let’s also remember that the Europeans’ public vote was given to Russia.
A few closing notes and news:
There is a petition (could be more than one), started by an Armenian, which demands that Eurovision 2016 results be annulled and Jamala stripped of her win. This petition as of yesterday gathered over 100,000 signatures.
Winner Ukraine is supposed to host next year’s Eurovision. Hosting Eurovision 2017 in Ukraine, a country in a state of civil war and rapidly falling apart? Why not, after all they did have presidential elections during civil war.
Jamala has hardly won, but Ukraine already announced that only those Russian singers would be allowed to participate in Eurovision 2017, who are ‘against Russia’s annexation of Crimea and who support this Kiev regime.’ This is in direct violation of Eurovision rules.
It is universally known that Ukraine has absolutely no funds to host Eurovision next year – a very expensive undertaking. All this was predictable and goes to show how little the Eurovision organizers are actually concerned about the quality and success of their competition. Looks like they are much more concerned about humiliating Russia.
Incidentally, in my personal opinion, Russia should stop participating in Eurovision and spend that million euros annually, or whatever the current fee is, on something useful.
Sadly, the ugly info war and the dirty global hybrid war will continue intensifying as we progress deeper into the Great Earth Shift. Lies will continue being told.
But the good news is that more and more truth about history and global shady dealings will continue emerging at the same time.

Quote from my April 4 article #Panamapapers Leak and MSM as Weapon of Mass Disinformation: Info War vs. #Putin, #Russia, #BRICS Escalates:
“Let me emphasize that this post isn’t about the veracity and merit of #Panamapapers leaks. In my view, we need as much as possible disclosure of truth on all levels. But it has to be unbiased and honest truth. While the actual leak may be absolutely beyond reproach, the problem is the attempt to turn it into anti-Putin, anti-Russia, anti-BRICS circus.
What US, UK and other MSM do is this: they take the truth and then bait and switch it with a lie convenient to them, parading it as truth.
We are in the period of the Great Earth Shift. Therefore, relentless attacks on Putin, Russia and anyone else attempting to shift to the new global set up, new global reality, will continue and intensify; such countries and leaders will continue being mercilessly attacked on all levels.
What did you expect? They are losing and they know time is short. They will use any means necessary. Obviously, they won’t dare attack Russia directly. They will use proxies and clandestine weapons. What is the West good at? MSM propaganda – definitely. They will continue using this weapon for as long as they can.”
New revelations from Wikileaks and other sources confirm what I said on April 4.
Wikileaks: ‘Panama Papers’ funded by US against Russian president:
(This post is a follow-up to: #Panamapapers Leak and MSM as Weapon of Mass Disinformation: Info War vs. #Putin, #Russia, #BRICS Escalates)
I had predicted since 2014 that whatever lies US/UK/West try to perpetuate against Russia will backfire, either right away or eventually. This is one of those ‘immediate backfires.’
Just wait! More of such backfires coming soon: some of them in regards to Ukraine and other post-Soviet space regions, and others related to the Middle East/ISIS/Turkey/Qatar/Saudis. US/West’s bluff in Syria has already been called. More is to come!
This is the Time of Russia, the Great Balancer of our planet. The grossly imbalanced world’s power and socio-political-economic structures are being rebalanced by the Great Planetary Balancer. West/US power is waning. New powers are rising. We are only in the beginning of this process. But the process has begun and it cannot be stopped.
I can’t emphasize enough how important it is for all those who want to know the real truth, to educated yourself re. your sources, whom you choose to trust and follow.

Goodbye Harper! Canada Celebrates New PM Trudeau’s Overwhelming Victory – With Analysis and Predictions
Goodbye Harper! Canada Celebrates New PM Trudeau’s Overwhelming Victory
With Analysis and Predictions!
Because Canada is so tightly connected to the US and because this victory by the opponent of the pro-US neocon Harper is so symptomatic of the Earth Shift we are experiencing, this is important for all to read!
Liberal Justin Trudeau has received 54% of the vote. It’s an overwhelming victory by Canadian standards, which will allow Trudeau to form a majority government. The people have rejected pro-US conservative neocon Harper’s policies (I wrote about his blatant interference in Ukraine and shale gas projects in 2014 and in early 2015). Instead, Canadians elected someone who’s described as Harper’s opposite in every possible way.
Trudeau is the hope of the country once considered a neutral peacemaker of the Western world. Canadians desperately want this image back, being tired of playing the loyal vassal to the White House. Harper’s government managed to turn on its head the once nice, environmentally friendly and neutral image of this northern country. By interfering in Ukraine, Syria and elsewhere, Harper had created a profit-at-all-cost war-mongering machine that is unlike Canada of old.
But can Trudeau change the tide?
As many of you know, my predictions, based on the Great Balancer Russia/Putin’s actions, is that the tide is indeed changing worldwide. Trudeau’s election is in stride with this sweeping Earth Shift change.
His young age and looks are also a huge advantage at this time in history (and let’s not forget his daddy’s legacy and name). He is seen as that hope for change so many Canadians long for. But will he be allowed to create the change? Or is Canada too deep in with the US and it’s too late? Is Trudeau for real, and can he be trusted?
Reader question posted in my latest article,
along with my answer:
AN IMPORTANT ADDITION AND UPDATE!
(to answer readers questions and comments):
Justin Trudeau and his wife’s heart chakra calibrations
Was Harper better for Canadian economy?
Canada’s role in the 2014 ukro-nazi coup and the destruction of Ukraine
Why am I not being interviewed by RT?
Question: I noticed one little thing in the RT video during a sequence featuring Trudeau and his wife – they both held their hands over their hearts. Could it signify they have open and active heart chakras – not everyone does it seems to me; I doubt Harper does.
I think Trudeau and his wife are genuinely trying, but it doesn’t mean they are angels. Actually, answering to another comment here, they obviously can’t be, being a part of the Western political spectrum. But they do reflect the needs and wishes of the majority of their voters. JT is as good as it gets right now for Canada, but it doesn’t mean he will do exactly what people want – as I explained above.
People have voted for Trudeau’s daddy/family track record more than for Justin himself, although his looks (let’s face it, people get attracted to outward looks) and his attitude do help a lot. I think the heart gesture was a learned gesture for both. They were trained to do so by their image makers – because, well… it looks good and genuine for their constituents. So, I wouldn’t go by the outward appearances.
I look into the root of the issue or person, and my calibrations (see my Chi Kinesiology Quantum Calibrations Scale) give much more insight into the truth.
Trudeau’s heart chakra isn’t very open: calibration 210, Chi 180. I would consider it very borderline from the stand point of a holistic and evolved being. But it’s much healthier than most politicians, which gives a certain hope. And it’s INFINITELY better than Harper’s heart chakra, which is practically non-existent. That is scary when the leader of your country has a non-existent heart chakra! I’d be very concerned, and his actions confirmed that. As an example, look at the fear mongering campaign he’d run for these elections!
For JT, it’s about as open as it can get for a Western politician. Same with his wife. Incidentally, Justin’s father had heart chakra that calibrated also at 210, Chi 185. Very similar. This gives one an idea what to expect from this politician.
Since politicians usually (with one or two exceptions in today’s world) aren’t messiahs or healers, they can’t have very open and beautiful heart chakras. Actually, if they did, they’d be eaten alive in the world of eat or be eaten. Only one head of state can afford to have a beautiful heart chakra, and this is because he has a literal wall of supporters helping him (I’m sure you all know who I am talking about). But most must be very guarded, calculating and cunning in that world – not a place for an open heart chakra.
As I said, the jury is out on how Justin Trudeau will perform in the future, but there is hope.
One more thing: someone posted a comment about the animosity existing between east and west and that Trudeau Sr. destroyed Canadian economy. The former is true in terms of certain distrust and alienation. The latter can be debated.
Certainly, some things offered by conservatives, such as running a tight ship, are attractive; certain things offered by liberals are also attractive, such as being environmentally conscious. In many ways, the two parties in Canada are much like the two parties in the US – often can’t tell them apart. It is a reasonable idea that working together they could balance each other’s weaknesses out. But let’s get real: the Western system is designed not as a cooperative system. They don’t want to work with each other – each wants to win and rule solo!
Under such circumstances, Trudeau is certainly a better choice on balance.
Moreover, in my above analysis I have addressed the people’s need to change the image of the country and the need to change the international policy of Canada. Internal finance/economy issues are different and they are not the focus at this time.
Economically speaking, at least 2 things Trudeau Sr. did were good:
Trudeau Sr. cracked down in his days on the Alberta oil and gas mafia, consisting in big part of heirs of those Bandera Ukraine nazis that collaborated with Hitler during WWII. These escaped in big part to Canada, US and Argentina after the defeat in WWII. Some of these criminals were up to their noses in blood of hundreds of thousands they executed, sometimes whole villages.
This is a dark page in Canada’s history, who accepted them because they had gold they stole from those they had killed. These people bought agricultural lands, which later became oil and gas fields, thus getting wealthy.
I know some in Canada may deny that what I am describing here is the case. In many cases these entities would keep their involvement under wraps – isn’t that the definition of a mafia?
So, this oil and gas mafia was allowed again to flourish during Harper. That led to the emboldening and much better financing of the Canada ukro-nazis, in turn also supported by Harper. These had sent monetary support to their western Ukraine contacts, trained ukro-nazis in Western Ukraine, financed and sent college and school teachers to Ukraine, staffed Ukraine MSM and helped re-write history books financed by Soros. Within short 10 years turned a once sane country called Ukraine into a crazed and hateful anti-Russia, facilitating 2014 ukro-nazi coup and civil war.
The participation of Canada in the destruction of Ukraine is enormous, both by Harper’s government officially and by Alberta Bandera-ukro-nazis privately, through their own resources. Their idea was to take revenge on Russia for their defeat and humiliation in WWII – and so far they’ve succeeded, practically destroying a once nice Ukraine.
Those who write comments like: “Harper was better for Canadian economy,” please keep in mind, Harper’s Canada takes a large chunk of blame for what happened in Ukraine. I’m sure no good citizen of Canada would want to prosper at the expense of any other country.
We can also talk about the terrible environmental track record of Harper. Prosperity at the expense of the environment isn’t good either.
Question: Why are you not being interviewed by RT, Lada?
At this time I don’t do video interviews due to certain privacy considerations. This may change in the future – I am debating with myself if I should perhaps start giving video interviews at some future point. Also, much is happening in my life and any interviews have been put on hold for now. I may have some audio interviews in the winter or spring.
I’ll keep you all posted.

Flashback! Bush – Blair Collusion on Regime Change in Iraq One Year Before Invasion
Not that it’s a shocking bit of news for anyone who is in the know (this certainly includes my readers), but it’s still noteworthy from the following standpoint: something that you and I have known for a long time is finally making its way into the Western mainstream media.
Imagine that! They are really, really slow (not to mention corrupt) – isn’t it why so many people are turning away from Western MSM? However, the very fact that this is coming to the spotlight in the mainstream is a good sign.
The truth will continue surfacing throughout this decade and next, and deliberately distorted history will slowly but surely continue being righted. Humanity needs to go through the cleansing and karmic re-balancing. There really isn’t any way around it; this is the only way for human civilization to shed its past and move forward.
These are two reports from RT, truly the only trustworthy English-speaking MSM our there. RT is a new, revolutionary wave of the MSM. It is an alternative MSM for the truth-seekers and it also has Russian, Spanish, Arabic and other language news. (I have various RT links on my RESOURCES page for your convenience).
RT: News of leaked memos indicating that former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair had already agreed to work with the George W. Bush Administration on the invasion of Iraq long before it began has been less than a shock to many people. Stephen Zunes, a major critic of the Bush administration and professor of politics and international studies at the University of San Francisco, offers his view as to why public reaction has been so tepid and what the invasion was really about.
RT: Leaked memos show that former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair was fully onboard with the George W. Bush administration with regard to the invasion of Iraq a full year before the war began. Manila Chan speaks with investigative journalist Russ Baker about the fallout from this leak and how policy leading to the invasion developed during the run up to the war.
So, it’s in the mainstream. The Bush – Blair Collusion on Regime Change in Iraq took place at least one year before Iraq invasion – and I would say much earlier than that!
It was done with participation and full knowledge of then US Secretary of State, Gen. Colin Powell, who afterwords tried to convince the UN that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, while parading fake proofs and equally fake maps. Colin Powell later said he was duped and mislead into thinking the proof was real, which lead him to deliver that fake UN speech. With these new revelations, it is confirmed what was long-suspected: Powell lied to everyone’s face when he said he didn’t know proofs were fake. The scandal led him eventually to resign and withdraw his presidential candidacy, costing him his highly cherished reputation and removal from public life.
I was somewhat familiar with Colin Powell – in the late ’90s I happened to work in Princeton with some of his associates. Incidentally, one of his people, who spent six months in the former Yugoslavia as a monitor during the civil war and subsequent US/EU bombing campaign, had admitted to me in a private conversation that what he saw on the ground and what US press and US government were saying had been two completely different things.
At the time, all the blame for war and atrocities in the former Yugoslavia was put 100% on Serbs. ‘The bad Serbs’ propaganda was necessary for Yugoslavia, the last remaining independent state in Europe, to be torn apart in the attempt to weaken and destroy Serbia. Even the core Serbian lands, such as Kosovo and Chernogoria (called in the West Montenegro) were taken away from them.
The reality I witnessed, had confided in me Colin Powell’s associate, was that they all had historic grudges against each other. They all were equally responsible for violence.
I knew all this very well, having grown up in Southern Europe and in the Slavic world. The long-brewing, but kept under the lid by the unified socialistic Yugoslavia, historic grudges ran deep. I knew why, how and when all those grudges came to be. For centuries Russia periodically played peacemaker in the region. It was in many ways similar to the atmosphere in Caucasus and all this was common knowledge where I came from. But convincing Americans of this was impossible in the 1990s. When I tried to write articles explaining the real situation, they were ALL rejected by any American MSM I attempted sending them to.
Alas, there was no Internet, no blogs and no websites in the 1990s. We were all held hostage to whatever agenda and lies they wanted to impose on us. In the ’90s I quickly got disenchanted with Western papers, magazines and TV and unsubscribed of all print, disconnecting cable TV by 2003.
I can’t stress enough how incredibly important it is to always keep a balanced perspective on things! Ironically, we have to be grateful primarily to the same USA for the mainstream Internet, YouTube, search engines and blogging platforms, such as WordPress. The Internet revolution became the Great Equalizer of the 21 Century, which allowed us all to read/watch/search for the truth, regardless of where we lived and what propaganda our local MSM imposed on us.
This fantastic breakthrough allowed people like myself, who had a lot of knowledge and truth to share, but who were shut up by MSM and existing prejudices, a platform to say what we wanted to say.
This is where USA, UK, as well all of the Anglo-American world, shine:
They can accomplish wonders when it’s necessary to turn something into a mainstream application, making it workable for the huge masses of people. This is a real, honest to goodness talent and contribution of the Anglo-American civilization to the human world.
If only they could learn to stick to using this god-given talent for good, instead of evil!
Actually, I think the fact that Western MSM is now losing readership/viewership daily is a well-deserved poetic justice and the long-earned karma in action.
Unless Western MSM of all breeds and colorings reinvent themselves, they will become extinct. The only way for them to reinvent themselves is to start telling the truth. But who are we kidding: those who control them can’t accept the truth… yet. One day they may be forced to, in order to survive. But it may be too late for what at this point in history we still refer to as ‘Western MSM.’
Incidentally, the truth about what really went on in Yugoslavia never came out of Colin Powell’s camp, despite their knowledge. Powell was at the time considered a war hero and a highly respected man of integrity. He had the people’s ear and he had infinitely more platform to make the truth heard than I did. It’s possible that if he shared with the world what his monitors knew about Yugoslavia, Serbian bombings wouldn’t have happened. Or at least, it would have been much more difficult to push them through without full public support.
That same ‘honorable’ Colin Powell saw it fit to spew lies to the UN later, when he became the US Secretary of State. For those who still have any illusions: this demonstrates very well who is in power in the US, no matter what party it is. It was true then and it’s true now. The same is true for the UK, with Blair in focus.
In the beginning of 2003 Colin Powell shook that fake proof at the UN and ardently tried to convince everyone that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and that Iraq harbored Al Qaeda. Living in the US, I heard a lot of talk calling ‘to fu*k those UN, Russia, China and Germany’ (does that remind you of Nuland and her “fu*k EU outburst?). As a lot of those ‘American patriots’ put it, ‘let our boys go in and do their thing.’
The truth is that the US population at large fully supported Iraq invasion, considering their country exceptional, one and only beacon of democracy, and existing to do as they pleased without any regard for others’ needs or opinions. Hitler and his version of Germany once thought the same.
I recall that time very well – it was the time I woke up completely and shed any remaining illusions as to what kind of country I was living in. US continued attempting to sell Afghanistan and Iraq invasions as ‘one bundle purchase,’ using the pretext of the 9/11 as justification.
The world swallowed the earlier Afghanistan invasion, being still in shock after 9/11. People all over the world sympathised with the US, and this normal human sympathy in the wake of what was believed to be a terrible and unjustified tragedy inflicted by outside forces on the unsuspecting America, was exploited by the US to do their dirty bidding.
But the world drew the line at Iraq. UN Security Council members Russia and China vetoed US request to authorize its strike against Iraq. US faced strong resistance from allies: Germany, France and Middle Eastern countries. US began Iraq invasion anyway, fully supported by UK, Poland, (former Soviet republic of) Georgia and the ‘coalition of the willing’ consisting of everyone else whose arm US/UK were able to twist into submission.
We soon started finding out that Powell’s ‘proofs’ were fake, that 9/11 was an inside job and that US/UK harbored a long-term plan of invading and dismembering at least seven Middle Eastern states, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Iran and Syria. We all know what happened to Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. We also know why Iran and Syria are still surviving: because Russia has protected them.
There is always a seed of defeat in every victory and a seed of victory in every defeat. US thought it got away with murder.
But the US invasion of Iraq and the lies accompanying it, marked the beginning of a new era. It is the era of the all-encompassing Earth Shift of all geopolitical, societal and economic structures. It is the era of the awakening and coming to terms with the truth. Their lies woke up those people who refused to continue accepting the official Western propaganga, who began digging for and telling the truth through alternative sources, trying to awaken others.
This era, which we are living today, is the global revolutionary time, when everything old, outmoded, and un-truthful is swept away. The old will morph into something new and different, some countries will change borders and even names. New alliances will be formed and old will die off. A new social, financial and economic system will emerge. And with that, USA will lose much of today’s clout and power.

All about Lada Ray’s EARTH SHIFT SYSTEM and QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS with Chi Kinesiology
Speaking your mind on air can be dangerous. But one news reporter appeared to get so fed up with the official stance of the news media that he completely flew off the handle and delivered the “f***ing news” raw and uncensored. His alternative report went viral, with fans asking for more.
(Warning: The video contains strong language)
The video first shows the apparent TV reporter, captioned as “Jonathan Pie,” getting angry after producers tell him to keep delivering the news standing in front of the Palace of Westminster, while it’s getting cold and rainy in London. When the man, looking visibly tired and exhausted, wonders whether he could possibly make a similar report from the studio, he is told to do the “f***ing news” without asking silly questions.
That’s when Pie loses control and decides to speak from his heart, the footage shows.
His impromptu report has apparently won him an army of supporters.
“It would be SO nice IF TV reporters & journalists did this for real every day: told the truth, [spoke from] their hearts. It could even make me watch TV again,” Jan Irhøj wrote on Facebook.
“Stellar!” Tony Medici commented.
“Someone’s just lost his job!” Suzanne Rogers said.
Few people have caught on the fact that “Jonathan Pie” is actually a spoof reporter. Even though his report was staged, many said they wished the real news was “really like this.”
As part of my 70 YEARS OF THE GREAT VICTORY MARATHON, I am posting this excellent translation of a Russian article by our reader and blogger Nemo (Stanislav).
(You can see all posts under category: 70 Years of Great Victory)
Read original at: Stanislavs.org
On a personal note, I know what would have happened in my life if that’s all Russians did:
I, FOR ONE, WOULD HAVE GROWN UP KNOWING MY GRANDPARENTS!
See my related article:
Below is a translation from Russian of two historical articles, published in Argumenty i Fakty on the 3rd of April 2015. The main article was written by Georgij Zotov. A subsequent expert opinion is presented by historian Rudolph Pihoj.
On the eve of the 70th anniversary of Victory “AiF” tried to imagine: what would the map of Europe look like, had USSR not given thousands of kilometres of territories as present to those countries that now call us occupiers. And if they would give up these lands now.
Wroclaw – one of the most touristic cities of Poland. Crowds with cameras are everywhere, there’s not a spare spot in the expensive restaurants, taxi drivers ask for ungodly prices. At the entrance to the marketplace there waves a banner saying “Wroclaw – a real Polish charm!”. All seems fine, but as early as in May 1945 Wroclaw was called Breslau and had not belonged to Poland for 600 consecutive(!) years before that. The Victory Day, now referred by Warsaw as “the beginning of the communist tyranny,” added to Poland the German Silesia, Pomerania, as well as 80% of East Prussia. No one mentions this now: in other words that was a tyranny, but we’d still grab that land. “AiF” observer decided to understand, what would the map of Europe look like now, if our former brothers in the East were left without the help of the “occupiers”?
Whole cities as gifts
– In 1945 Poland received the cities of Breslau, Gdansk, Zielona Gora, Legnica, Szczecin, – says Maciej Wisniewski, a Polish freelance journalist. – USSR also gave the territory of Bialystok; with the mediation of Stalin, we acquired a disputed with Czechoslovakia city Kłodzko. Nevertheless, they believe here: the partitioning of Poland by the Molotov – Ribbentrop Pact, when the Soviet Union took the Western Belarus and Western Ukraine, was unfair, but the transfer by Stalin to Poland of Silesia and Pomerania is absolutely fair, you can not dispute this. It is fashionable to say now that Russians did not liberate, but conquered. However, it turns into an interesting kind of occupation, when Poland got for free a quarter of Germany: and on top of it, hundreds of thousands of Soviet soldiers shed their blood for this land. Even the GDR resisted, not wanting to give Szczecin to the Poles – the dispute over the city was finally solved only in 1956, under pressure from the USSR.
Apart from the Poles, the Baltic States express a strong indignation by the “occupation”. Well, it’s worth remembering: the current capital – Vilnius – was also presented to Lithuania by the USSR; by the way, the Lithuanian population of Vilnius was then… barely 1%, with Polish being the majority. USSR returned to the Republic the city of Klaipeda – Prussian Memel, owned by Lithuanians in the 1923-1939, and annexed by the Third Reich. Already back in 1991 the Lithuanian leadership condemned the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, but no one returned neither Vilnius to Poland, nor Klaipeda to Germany.
Ukraine, which by the Prime Minister Yatsenyuk’s words, declared itself “a victim of Soviet aggression on a par with German,” is unlikely to give to the Poles its western part with Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk and Ternopil (these cities were included by the “aggressor” into the UkSSR in 1939), Chernivtsi region to Romania (ceded to the UkSSR on August 2, 1940), and Transcarpathia to Hungary or Slovakia – received on June 29, 1945. Romanian politicians do not stop discussions about the validity of the “annexation” of Moldova by the Soviet Union in 1940. Of course, it’s long forgotten that after the war, it was thanks to Soviets that Romanians got back the province of Transylvania, which Hitler took in favour of Hungary. Bulgaria, by the mediation of Stalin himself, kept South Dobrudja (formerly the possession of that very same Romania), something that was confirmed by the treaty of 1947. But now Romanian and Bulgarian newspapers do not say a single word about it.
They don’t say ‘Thank you’
– After 1991, Czech Republic removed the monuments to the Soviet soldiers, and announced that Victory Day marks the replacement of one dictatorship with another, – says Alexander Zeman, a Czech historian. – However, it was thanks to the insistence of the Soviet Union, that Sudetenland was returned to Czechoslovakia, with the cities of Karlovy Vary and Liberec, where 92% of the population were Germans. Recall that at the Munich Conference of 1938 the Western powers supported the annexation of the Sudetenland by Germany – only the Soviet Union protested. At the same time the Poles grabbed from Czechoslovakia the Cieszyn region and did not want to give it back after the war, insisting on a referendum. Under the pressure of the USSR on Poland, supporting the the Czechoslovak position, a treaty was signed – Tesín returned to the Czechs, secured by the agreement of 1958. No one says ‘Thank you’ to the Soviet Union for this help – apparently the Russians are in debt to us with the very fact of their existence.
In general, we gave away all the lands, not forgetting anyone – and for this they now spit in our faces. In addition, few people know about the pogroms, committed by the new government on “the returned areas” – 14 million Germans were expelled from Pomerania and the Sudetenland. While the residents of Königsberg (which became Soviet Kaliningrad) moved to the GDR over the period of 6 years (until 1951), Poland and Czechoslovakia giving 2-3 months, while many Germans were given only 24 hours to get ready, being allowed to take only a suitcase of things, and forced to walk on foot for hundreds of kilometres. “You know, it’s not worth mentioning it, – they timidly point out to me at City Hall of Szczecin. – Such things spoil our good relations with Germany.” Well, yes, we get poked in the face for every little thing, while it’s a sin to offend the Germans.
What interests me personally in this matter is the question of justice. Things have already reached schizophrenia: when a person in Eastern Europe says that the Soviet victory over the Nazis is the liberation, he is regarded as either a fool or a traitor. Guys, let’s be honest. If the consequences of May 9, 1945 are so bad, illegal and terrible, all the other actions of the USSR are similarly no better. How could the solution by those who brought tyranny into your land be good? Therefore Poland should give Silesia, Pomerania and Prussia back to the Germans, Ukraine should return their western part to the Poles, Chernovtsy to Romanians, Transcarpathia to Hungary, Lithuania should abandon Vilnius and Klaipeda, Romania should give up Transylvania, the Czech Republic – the Sudetenland and Tesin, Bulgaria – Dobrogea. And then everything will be completely honest. But what do we have? They slander us for all it’s worth, accuse us of all mortal sins, but at the same time clutch with a stranglehold onto the Stalin’s “gifts”. Sometimes I feel like imagining: I’m curious what would have happen should USSR push Hitler back exactly to its borders and not look further into Europe after that? What would have now been left of the territories of those countries, that today, before the 70th anniversary of the Victory, are calling their liberation by Soviet troops for “occupation”? The answer is, however, extremely simple – bits and pieces.

How Europe was partitioned after 1945
Expert opinion by historian Rudolph Pihoj
– There is a half-legendary story that during Churchill’s visit to Moscow in 1944, he and Stalin drew the map of postwar partitioning of Europe during a dinner on plain napkin. Eyewitnesses claimed that the “document” contained a series of numbers, which (in percent) reflected the degree of the future influence of the Soviet Union and the West in different regions: Bulgaria and Romania – 90 to 10, Greece – 10 to 90, Yugoslavia – equally …
That napkin was not preserved, but in principle the issue of changing of the borders in Europe was settled by the “big three” – Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill – during the Tehran and Yalta conferences. USSR adhered to the concept that was developed already back in 1944 by the Deputy People’s Commissar for Foreign Affairs, Ivan Maisky. It implied that the Soviet Union should establish such a configuration of borders, which would ensure the safety of the country for at least 25, and preferably 50 years.
In accordance with the concept developed by Maisky, USSR annexed the former German Memel, which became Lithuanian Klaipeda. The following cities became Soviet: Königsberg (Kaliningrad), Pillai (Baltijsk) and Tilsit (Soviet), which now constitute the Kaliningrad region of Russia. Also, the USSR secured the part of the territory of Finland, that was attached as a result of the “Winter War”. In general, the Soviet policy of those years was characterised by a surprising consistency in addressing regional issues. The only thing that could not be done – seizing the Black Sea straits, although this issue was discussed in Tehran and Yalta. While Port Arthur again, as in the early twentieth century, became an outpost of the country in the Far East, not to mention the southern part of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands, which Russia lost as a result of the Russian-Japanese war.
